For the past 3 years I've been building Vendure - an open-source headless e-commerce framework for developers.
As is so common, I started it to scratch my own itch - my family's online shop needed an update and I was disappointed with the lack of modern tooling for e-commerce development.
So I started building. With zero marketing beyond a Twitter account, I now have a ~900-strong Slack community, 2k+ stars on GitHub, and Vendure is being used in dozens of production projects, including a huge Europe-wide streetwear marketplace (Klekt).
Today I launched v1.0. Now the exciting part begins!
